Brief History of Our Leaders

 Bishop Aaron I. Milton & Dr. Evangelist Virgie M. Milton were united in marriage over 50 years ago and have successfully raised (9) nine children and many more foster children.

Bishop & Dr. Milton accepted Christ many years ago and shortly after were the Lord called this couple into the ministry. They have supported various churches in the City of Lansing, MI and several surrounding areas. This power couple took the responsibility of caring for many children in the community and witnessing to a diverse group of young adults. One day the Lord spoke to Bishop Aaron Milton in a open vision and said distinctly, “GATHER MY PEOPLE, FOR MY PEOPLE ARE ON DEATH ROW”! At that moment, he knew that there was a greater calling on his life to win souls for Christ.

The bible states, “Write the Vision and Make it plain”, so in November of 1983, Bishop & Dr. Milton formed the Jesus of Nazareth Church of God in Christ in their home. The membership started to increase, so the church relocated to the YMCA, and then to 611 Samantha Street in Lansing, MI.

As the flock continued to expand even larger, through fervent prayer and fasting, the Jesus of Nazareth Church of God in Christ family relocated to our current edifice located at 4331 Sycamore Street, Holt, Michigan, where history was made as the first African-American Church Congregation in Holt, Michigan. The Jesus of Nazareth Church believes in allowing the fire of the Holy Ghost to lead and guide all church services. We are a “Spirit Led” Church! The sole purpose of the ministry is to gather souls and prepare people for the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
